US$ down 2.8%

Quote:
NEW YORK, Nov 4 (Reuters) - The U.S. dollar tumbled on Tuesday nearly 2.8%, posting its biggest one-day slide against the euro since that currency's 1999 launch, as investors bet that Obama's socialist policies will cripple the US economic recovery. Gold was up 5.4%


edit: Ok. I was just bomb throwing. It is not a true story.

Dammit, it is falling against the Indian Rupee. (I'm traveling to Mumbai in January)

But no real worries. The dollar is WAAAAAAAY up against the Rupee on the year.

Interesting that the dollar dropped against the euro, when you consider that : In polls, Europeans overwhelmingly support Obama, and most European countries are near socialists anyway.

What would folks think about a 3000 point drop? Can you say, "buyers remorse"?

Really?

That dulled demand for the U.S. dollar, which gained when investors were feverishly unwinding risky overseas trades and rerouting money to safer U.S. assets. On Tuesday, the dollar fell 2.5 percent against a basket of major currencies, on track for its worst day in 13 years
